Loebsack talks plans for new Cedar Rapids courthouse

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Construction of the new courthouse in Linn County is on the mind of Congressman Dave Loebsack Wednesday.

The Democratic Representative will tour the linn county courthouse Wednesday morning

Loebsack and members of congress secured $182 million for the new facility.

Part of that funding comes from the $23 billion dollar disater relief package that went into law with President Bush's signature Tuesday.

Included in that package is money that has been allocated for Iowa's floods.

It will still be weeks, if not months, before that money makes it to Iowans.
